What makes us different than other English schools?

  1. We care about our teachers. We’re not too big, so we know everyone. There is always someone available to provide support in English (apartment set-up, questions about documents, problems with the trains – anything!).
  2. No surprises. We take a more straightforward approach to placement and discuss it with you before you arrive (you don't find out just before signing a contract).
  3. No gimmicks. Your contract is clear and you always get your stated salary on time. We don’t use overly-complicated incentive plans that change your base salary. We also don’t require you to sell anything in order to be paid your full salary.
  4. Continuous training and follow-up to help you grow as a teacher. We won't forget about you after your first week.
  5. Upward mobility. We do have opportunities for advancement, promotions, and extra incentives available.
  6. Social events. Our community is important. We are always planning events to give our teachers a chance to meet, share ideas, and relax together.

Our Location and Placement Options

Most of our schools are located in the Chiba prefecture and Tokyo area. We also have some franchise schools located in more distant locales. We try to find the best possible location match for our candidates and we will discuss details about the location during the interview process. No surprises – we will talk to you about the location and you can choose the best fit for you. You’ll know exactly where you are going before you get to Japan.

Still not decided? Why should you teach in Japan?

  1. It has one of the most stable currencies in the world. Analysts are expecting a bounce in the yen during 2018. Pay off your debts.
  2. Safety; one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
  3. Convenient, reliable public transportation; access to almost anywhere in Japan.
  4. While working in Japan, you are eligible for National Health Insurance which covers 70% of medical AND dental.
  5. Japan has a unique, friendly, and receptive culture. In your off time, there are many opportunities to learn, see, or do something new. Experience more than what you’ve read about.
